The Ripple™ folding pocket knife has become the anchor of the popular "gentleman's tactical" knife series from Ken Onion and CRKT.
These new 2013 stainless steel handle versions ride low profile due to the considerate clip position and are designed to be used as an everyday carry pocket knife.
With their distinct look these knives will complement the refined taste of the distinguished gentleman. They slide in and out of a suit pocket easily and are also comfortable at home in your jeans in the garage.
Stylish curves and smooth flowing lines help to create the Ripple™ effect that defines the look of the handle. These distinctive frame locks feature an ambidextrous blade flipper for easy opening. The flipper style opener moves the blade with ease thanks to the smooth IKBS™ pivot system. The IKBS™ innovation is arguably the strongest, smoothest pivot system on the market.
The Ripple™ modified drop point blade with its high hollow grind affords the user a razor sharp
edge with plenty of utility to cut across a wide variety of everyday tasks.
The new Ripple™ - Stainless comes in 2.78 blade length (5.56 overall), Razor Sharp Cutting Edge version in both Gray and Bronze colors. There also is a larger blade size available in 3.16 (6.38 overall) with options of Razor-Sharp Cutting Edge or Veff™ Flat Top Serrations. All in Acuto 440 Steel 57-58 HRC.
Just received my Ripple (combo edge) in the mail. Was purchased to replace my Kershaw Leek, which I have ended up not being happy with due to a very weak tip. I watched a couple of reviews on this blade and was very intrigued. I was very nervous to drop $100 dollars on a knife that was going to be an EDC blade, but now I know its worth every penny. I must say that there are two things that truly make this knife great. First, the serrations are outstanding, they cut as smoothly as the straight edge portion of the blade and seem to be very durable. Second would be the unique handle pattern, its very light, has good grip patterns where needed, and it simply looks awesome Thanks CRKT and Ken Onion for this great knife, I look forward to incorporating this blade into my EDC system
